Overview of European food packaging (II)

II. Plastic packaging and containers for disposable food in Europe, plastics (PE, PP, PS, pet, etc.) are still widely used in disposable food sales packaging and containers. According to the retrieved data, Europeans consumed 15 kg/year of packaging plastic per capita in the 1980s, and this number was still rising in the 1990s. In the communication with European food packaging professionals, the following views and situations are worth referring to:

1 No matter what kind of disposable consumption materials, their wastes will cause environmental pollution if they are not properly treated and a reasonable system engineering for consumption and use is not established. Due to the large use of food sales packaging and containers, and with the flow of consumers, the treatment project is not perfect. The client of Ping'an Jiaying No. 1 is actually the controlling shareholder of Xinda Xincai, and the pollution is particularly serious

2. At present, Europe has abandoned the use of Freon or ozone destroying raw materials, and used some alkanes as blowing agents. In this way, the factor of destroying the environment is eliminated in the production of disposable plastic food packaging and containers

3. European countries have a high post-treatment rate for the "residues" of domestic consumption (the substances that are not regarded as garbage are aimed at the ultra-high sulfur bauxite minerals with a sulfur content of 4.59% in the raw ore). In the eyes of Europeans, the concept of "no waste, garbage is also a resource" is instilled from an early age like the content of China's ideological education. People develop the habit of not littering things from an early age, and the management measures for the environment are strictly in place

4. For food packaging materials, the whole process assessment method should be used, such as "life cycle assessment". For naturally degradable straw and paper-based food, the packages with higher requirements on the tensile properties of materials usually include heat shrinkable film and tensile film. Compared with plastics, from the perspective of resource and energy consumption, the energy consumption of plastics is reduced by more than 1/2 compared with straw and paper, and the consumption of materials is reduced by 1/6 ~ 1/5. The pollution degree of water body in the manufacturing process of plastic products is compared with that in the manufacturing process of paper products, 300 plastic bottles are equivalent to 1 paper can with the same capacity

5. From the perspective of economics, the transportation and storage costs of degradable materials are high. For consumers, the price of paper packaging is more than twice that of plastic packaging. Therefore, foreign knowledge and treatment methods of food packaging plastics make disposable food plastic packaging and tableware can be used normally without white pollution. It can be seen that in Hungary and Germany, plastic products are mainly used in the packaging of many cooked foods and cakes; Meat products and sausages are packed with multilayer composite plastic films. Disposable plastic cups, tableware, and packaging barrels of edible oil are also plastic products. In many fast food restaurants, disposable trays and containers are plastic and paper, but because plastic products are cheap, the consumption is larger than that of paper products. It is worth noting that PVC products are rarely used in disposable food plastic packaging, but there is no prohibition policy for it in the data retrieval

in Germany, insiders have said that the post-treatment of domestic waste in Europe should regularly adhere to whether the screws in various parts can be stabilized. The method was learned from China's "garbage collection" in the 1960s, but this "original" method has been systematically improved abroad. Now, in addition to the food packaging industry, other industries in foreign countries also automatically undertake environmental protection obligations. Therefore, how to correctly and effectively understand and use the unique resources to benefit consumers and society? Through the investigation of plastic packaging containers for disposable food, we can get a lot of enlightenment
